Depending what side you need to change? Ive changed loads of these for my customers over the years, Golf's and A3's can both be a little tricky. Directly behind the lamp assembly you should see a large single piece plastic cover. x2 tags are visible at the top and have to be depressed for the cover to tilt backwards and upwards to lift out. Be aware, these tags can break so pushing the cover inwards slightly whilst depressing these tags will lesson the chance of breaking. The dip beam bulb is normally a type 499 and will have a 2 wire connector plug. Pull this straight back to remove. A sprung steel clip holds the bulb in place. With a torch you will see an obvious end to this clip. Depress and ease to the side to bring it out of line with its recess. It will no swing backwards and allow the bulb to be removed. Note the tag is upper most on the bulb. Dont touch the glass of the bulb with your fingers, hold it by the base, then reassemble in the reverse order. Hope this helps? Good luck

2004 Audi A4 headlight replacement


you have to loosen the whole headlight assembly to open the covers behind the lights to actually get to the bulbs. 4 screws, 2 are on the top of the assembly(phillips screws) the other two are hex and attach the bottom of the assembly to the car. somewhat difficult to see but look behind the assembly and down into the compartment and loosen the screws(they don't fully come out) just enough to pull the assembly out. open the black cover behind he low bean and there is the bulb

Headlights


If you are only changing the bulbs, on the back of the headlight assembly, you'll see two metal retainers that hold the rear cover to the assembly.  Pop those outward from the headlight, and the rear cover will be loose.  Pull back on it, and you'll see the bulbs.  Turn the retainer counter-clockwise, and it will pull off, allowing you to remove the bulb.  Installation is the reverse of removal.

Bulb replacment


The bulbs are changed from the rear. There might be a weather cover, once its removed you will see a ring or clip holding in the bulb , remove that to remove the bulb. Install in reverse order. And a little known fact most parts stores will install bulbs for free when you buy them.

Installing headlight bulb in a 2006 Audi A4 Avant


that's generally the only way to change them... you may have to remove the battery or other obstacles to get at them.... a quarter turn or so should free the bulb. careful not to touch the bulb with your fingers as that shortens the life of them

Change the Front indicator on an Audi A4 2001


Take out the two Torx bolts on top of the headlight assembly. Then there is a third hidden bolt. Look through the holes in the top front of the fender, above and behind the headlight's turn signal portion (you'll probably need to shine a light in there) and you'll see the third bolt. Remove that and the headlight pulls straight forward and out. Then you can change the bulb.

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


AUDI A4- 2005. There is a technical service bulletin for this exact problem. take it to the dealer when this issue has happened while driving. During a daytime drive when cold see if you cant get the light to fail while circling your dealer. As soon as you pull into the service drive do not turn the car off do not flip the switch. I am an Audi Technician for a dealer in Birmingham alabama. Personally this is not my favorite repair to perform; What audi states is that if the bulb flickers the bulb should be replaced; if one side fails the bulb should be swapped left to right if the fault continues with the bulb the bulb is at fault; if the bulb is swapped and the bulb fails again on the same side it is the module. NOW: I currently am working on a 05 A4 that both bulbs both modules have been replaced and Audi has no clue what to advise on a repair. THIS IS AN ISSUE if it has happened to you ask if there is a TSB for this issue or try to find it for yourself.
